Sorry, I misread your email, it clearly says that you are currently
running 4.1.5... What was the version when the panic occurred?

Regarding stepping clocks, I believe that we still haven't reached a
consensus regarding how to deal with them. So you may still get a
crash for this reason. At the very least, it now tells you the reason
in the panic message.
